Pork chops made girlled in the Cuban style makes a difference in the taste and flavor. The seasoning of oregano, cumin, onion and garlic makes it much more flavorful.
  Pork chops 6 , trim excess fat (About 1/2 Inch Thick)
  Sour orange/2 parts lemon juice to 1 part orange juice 1 Cup (16 tbs) (Naranja Agria)
  Crushed garlic 2 Tablespoon
  Cumin 1 Pinch
  Dried oregano 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Onion 1 Medium, thinly sliced
  Olive oil 1 Tablespoon
  Limes 2 , cut into wedges

In a mixing bowl combine the naranja agria, garlic, cumin, dried oregano, salt and pepper to make the mojo marinate. Place pork chops in a deep baking dish in a single layer and sprinkle them with salt on both sides. Pour mojo over the pork chops, cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for a minimum of 2 hours or best if over night.

Preheat the grill to high heat. Grill the pork chops, 3 to 4 minutes per side, until browned and the center of the pork is no longer pink. The pork chops are done when the pork’s internal temperature (using an instant read thermometer ) reaches 160 degrees.

In the meantime, add oil to non-stick fry pan and sauté the onion till just translucent. Set aside.

Remove the pork from the grill and transfer to a serving platter. Top with the sautéed onions and squeeze lime juice over the top. Serve immediately.
